six-pack debate by any stretch. there weren't a lot of bright spots for the president. this was romney's night. everyone on both side saying that. one effective thing the president did, pointed out romney is still short on details on a few key things, health care plan, his tax care plan, as well as as frank-dodd. did he score any points as far as romney being a blank canvas? >> there were a few vulnerabilities when you talked about entitlements, tax plans, he has to square these numbers. he dug himself some holes, that the obama campaign can dig him into even more. it's going to be difficult for him to square those things in a future debate. i think there is possible areas of opportunity there. this was not something that even the most dedicated partisans can paint as a good night for president obama. >> you know it's a bad night if opinions are that uniform, huh? >> exactly. the next presidential debate, tuesday, october 16th. >> thank you, rick. >> thanks. >> thank you, guys. >>> our coverage of the debate does not end here. we'll take you live to denver, during "america this morning
